. >> we don't pay you a lot for cnbc contributor, do we -- did we order you to be here? >> i'm contracturally obligated to not specify anything. >> not specify anything? here at 5:30 and all the way to 9:00. >> i knew that there would be trouble this morning. i got myself seated -- >> good. we'll squeeze you for everything you're worth. we needed a big name. >> big name. we got one. >> it day after -- for december 26. >> you're too kind. >> then here you are. >> here he is. >> what did you get? anything good? >> i have -- >> switch, lump of coal? >> he's a hanukkah guy. >> a lump of coal -- yes, but a lump of coal at some point probably worth something. tet rate we're going. >> that's right. you're -- no tree? >> i want a tree, my wife says they're too messy. >> the trees are messy. >> the needs needles -- >> you have the festivus pole. >> grievances -- >> you better go, sorry. >>> let's do the main headlines this morning. of course, there's only one main story this morning. it's a familiar one. the looming fiscal cliff. aides for both parties now saying a partial agreement o
their lives in that attack, trying to protect americans. and that is a different thing. i don't think -- that has, in my opinion, no relationship to what happened in iran which was all caught up with where the shah was going, what the reaction would be, whether we had adequate security. what happened in libya, the ambassador wanted to get out, he wanted to not be holed up in the embassy in tripoli. he realized there was some risk because this happened in iraq, too, but in a different way. when you get rid of an old regime, you know, one of the things they try to maintain control of was their security services, for obvious reasons. every dictatorship does, right? so they took down the old security service, and they hadn't really built -- had time to build up their own. and there was a lot of weapons floating loose in the country. but i think the american people, for all the tragedy here, could take a lot of comfort in the fact that libyan citizens stormed the offices of some of these militia groups to get the weapons out. they are trying to fix it. >> i mean, they forced a couple of th
. and then, you know, i don't think we've run this bite enough. >> tim geithner told steve liesman. >> i have it ready. >> that he is we should show it multiple times. >> tt is the administration prepared to go over the fiscal cliff? >> oh, absolutely. there's no prospect to an agreement that doesn't involve those rates going up on the top 2% of the wealthiest -- remember, it's only 2%. and all of those americans get a tax cut on the framework of the first $250,000 of their income. >> yeah, yeah, you still get the 250, andrew. they love that. what does oh, absolutely mean, bob? >> maybe it means his favorite movie was "rebel without a cause." >> go the. >> i guess it's letting the other side know you're willing to go eyeball to eyeball with something that is terrible. >> i see both sides pretending to say, yeah, we're doing all we can, but it's almost just like this -- like boehner just said, hey, you guys, you happen, in the democratic-controlled senate, you put a bill together. i'd love to consider it. he can't get his guys to consider a democratic bill. >> as long as they feel like they ca
see me as this star. i don't see myself like that. >> barbra streisand, the way she is. a funny girl. this is "piers morgan tonight." >>> people ask me who i would most like to have on my show as a guest, one name continuously pops up in my mind. she's a fabulous actress and a truly iconic voice, and the greatest that has ever been. she is a humanitarian, a wife, a mother, an activist, and a funny girl, and she is, of course, barbra streisand. i even got your name right. >> did you say barbra? >> barbra, but i said streisand right. we had dinner and you corrected me. streisand. some english way of saying it. >> that's it, by god, you've got it. >> now, i have just come from watching your brilliant new movie. i don't say that lightly, "guilt trip." the reason i loved it is it reminded me exactly what it would be like if i went on a road trip with my mother. it's about you and seth rogen. you go off on a bizarre crazy road trip together. you're the archetypal jewish mother and he's the archetypal son, and hilarity ensues. in a funny touching way. let's watch the clip. >> i'm over here.
the feeding on car cases. >> they clean up the mess that others don't eat. >> he can take a rock, and open the ostrich egg, he uses a tool for that. >> what is this? >> remember, you did a story. >> it is okay with me. pie pierson the ground, piers, they can jump and out run anything in the first 20 yards. this one is a nice one. if you look there, you have two eyelids. >> i don't mean nice. it is not fair. >> you are killing me, right? >> he is not fgoing to, right now. >> i want to show you something. >> grant does a great job with alligat alligators. >> it is hard to do this. >> the power, the cameras can see this. >> looking down the throat there. see that? >> it is flat back there. if a fish comes around. that is a cave, bam. they don't, they don't chew, they tear. what is his name. they live 75 to 100 years old >> would they attack if they are not challenged or scared? >> if you go around with youngsters, they lay eggs, if you get next to the nest, they are over here, if you get year it, it is one of the most aggressive animals in nature. >> if it is a hot nest the agos will be males
people who produce and somehow reward people who don't. and we have also had a foreign policy that is supposed to make a stronger and more respected, but it hasn't worked out either. let's just put it this way. if that is flexibility, we all better learn to be very flexible the next four years. earlier this month susan rice withdrew her name from consideration from post of secretary of state. that's after strong opposition to her potential nomination. republicans were critical of her after she went on five different sunday news shows. she gave this explanation for the terrorist attacks that killed four americans in benghazi, libya on september 11th. >> the best assessment we have is that in fact this was not a pre planned, premeditated attack. what happened initially was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo. it was a consequence of the video that people gathered outside the embassy, and then it grew very violent. those with extremist ties joined the fray and came with heavy weapons which unfortunately are quite common in post revolutionary libya. that th
to immigration is a joke. we exploit people economically. we exploit the issue for political purposes. we don't get people dignity. and we need to do that most of all. and we've got to do something about the rising percentage of our national economy that's being taken up by the cost of our unfunded government programs. we need to find a way to contain the rising cost of health care because that is the number one cause of our fiscal and debt problem and it's not going away. so it looks like 2013's going to be real. it's going to deal with issues of peace and war, issues of national identity, issues of personal security, especially for our young. think it's not at your peril. say it and you're part of the problem. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. we have a happy and safe new year out there. "the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >>> good evening, americans. welcome to "the ed show." i'm michael eric dyson, in for ed schultz. breaking news from washington tonight. nbc news has confirmed that the president will host a meeting with all four congressional leaders at
their colleagues to pass something before the end of the year. they don't think it's a win for them to keep fighting. that means letting taxes go up on the rich. let's see what senator isaacson said. >> the truth of the matter is if we go off the cliff, the president will come back and proposing what he said in washington and we'll adopt it. why should we put the markets in turmoil and people in misunderstanding and lack of confidence? why don't we act now? >> okay so he says might as well do it. but you know the republican reason for not doing it now is? >> senate republicans want a deal done. but house republicans are in total chaos. >> why do they want a deal january 3rd or 4th rather than now? >> if all tax rates go up, any deal can be called a tax cut. it's simple like that. if you go over the cliff, anything's a tax cut. >> if you do it now how's it interpreted? >> the interpretation will some primary voters is you danced around on rates. >> or they pass a bill cutting taxes continuing the bush tax cuts for under $500,000 a year. something they agree on. >> because of what bob's sayin
. thanks for being with me today. "cnn newsroom" continues right now with don lemon. >> you're going to get a lot of comments when it comes to guns, right? >> more than 700 now. >> did you have a good christmas? >> i did, don. thank you. >> merry christmas. >>> i'm don lemon. ashleigh is off today. violent, treacherous storms pounding the eastern u.s. right now. blizzard conditions from southern illinois across ohio and then to the south, heavy rain in the carolinas and virginia. this is on top of yesterday's mayhem which kicked up about 30 tornadoes. >> oh, my god. we need to be. it's right there. >> this ominous sight was videotaped from the interstate near mobile, alabama. the driver wisely stopped and turned around. i want you to listen to the funnel cloud as it approached the city. >> christmas day tornado. going through mobile. oh, my god, look, that's a tornado. oh, wow. oh, jesus, look at that tornado. >> look at that. it caused a lot of damage. and knocked out power to more than 20,000 customers. incredibly, no one was killed, although at least two storm-related deaths were reporte
and we don't be what that will be and we should get more clarity on that tomorrow if there is, in account fa, a meeting at the white house we might find out what they're hammering out behind closed doors. >> thus far, democrats have refused to do any meaningful entitlement reform and republicans have refused to do anything related to taxes. we both know each side wants a piece of the other to do those exact things and both sides still refuse. is there anything that means those two factors have changed. >> we saw it on the stock market today and we saw the wild swings as news developments happened throughout the course of the day. it impacted the market throughout date and if that continues that kind of pressure from the outside could really put some force on these members of congress to come together for a deal. the closer we get the more pressure from the outside they're going feel and i think it makes it easier, not harder to get a deal in the last 48 to 24 hour space lot of folks have said that's the sweet spot for a deal anyway and there's another group that says we're going over this
injuries. >> you doughnut -- don't think about tornadoes in winter weather. how unusual is it? >> they're rare but they happen in december. the system was huge. it affected the whole southeast region. what was unique about it, it affected every part of the region differently. some areas were drenched with torrential rain, others with flash floods and powerful winds that skipped across the region. trees and power lines are on the ground leaving debris in the roadway and the stormy conditions as we just heard from maria are continuing, so officials say if you're in one of the impacted states, don't get on the roadways if you don't have to. >> it's good advice. elizabeth, thank you. >>> one man in mobile, alabama was celebrating christmas with his family when the tornado sirens went off. he took his relatives to the school where he's a teacher and they tried to ride out the storm in the fieldhouse but just minutes after they arrived, so did the twister. he says the pressure suddenly went down and everybody's ears began to pop. when it was over, some of the buildings, including his classro
. >> we don't know if that is the specifically the offer on the table. it started at president's opening offer 250. you could see a pathway forward to raise the threshold up to 400, $500,000 a year, any amounts below that don't get tax increase. any amounts above that get tax increase. end of the year fixes preventing medicare doctors getting large pay cut. amt fix, prevents millions of americans paying the amt reform kick that to next year. that is sort of the path aides were seeing some variation yeah that could actually pass the house or senate. whether that was specifically discussed here or on the table we don't know that. adam: rich, stay there. i want to bring in a few of our guests to talk more about this. for more on the shock wave of the developments, let's bring in dan cato, cato institute and rick unger. rick, let me start with you, are we optomistic both sides moved the discussion forward or is that a fancy way of saying they moved it forward and are ignoring each other. >> i say in a word no. i'm not feeling it. there is little reason to believe we'll see something small or
people, i don't think understand the house representative is operating without the house of representatives. it's being operated with a dictator ship )÷!>> let him take the country over the fiscal cliff if he so chooses. they were elected to get the fiscal house in order. now is the time for republicans to stand up for your kids and grandchildren. maybe she the should say they're looking out for the future, future generations maybe now is the time to take a stabbed stand and say they're not going let washington continue with this out of control spending, debt, maybe now, at this moment, maybe that is the right thing to do. and joining me now with reaction to this developing story are two house republicans, congressman louie gomert. welcome back to "hannity". >> good to be with you. >> sean, i can -- . >> sean: go ahead. >> i can sympathize that he can not imagine our consciences in the house because you'd have to have one to aimagine ours. and he's shown repeatedly, over three years of no budget? come on. jm%lx >>> and first through on december 31. up, hairy reid
of a deal because if we don't get it done now, we need to go and make sure that things get done so we don't raise taxes and taxes aren't raised for all these americans that are looking at it come january 1st. >> why did he fly all the way back from hawaii and cut his vacation short if he's eager to go over the cliff in is that part of his charade. >> if he wants to actually blame other people for his lack of leadership he has to appear, at least, to be coming back to find a solution. if the president was really interested in the level of the debt we have in this country, the $16 trillion, we would have had a budget passed in the senate sometime in the last three years. he proposed a budget and none of the democrats even voted for it. it got 0 votes. i don't think the president is focused where we ought to be focused which is the spending. we have a spending problem. he's fixated on tax rates that only give you about seven days of what the government spends. >> he didn't get any votes on his budget or not very many, but i will give him credit for at least submitting one. it's more than sen
this. >> the american people i don't think understand the house of representatives is operating without the house of representatives. it's been operated with a dictatorship of the speaker. >> now this entire fiasco could have easily been avoided if senate democrats would have passed an extension of the bush tax cuts. the house sent them that bill months ago. they have been in control of the senate for years so why haven't they passed a judgment? they aren't serious about our nation's debts and deficits. we are $16 trillion in debt, we are running out of money yet again, trillion dollars deficits every year for the past four years, and get this, we are also borrowing at this moment 46 cents of every dollar they spend in washington. on top of that social security is going bankrupt, as is medicare, and all obama is fighting for is increasing taxes that will only pay for 8 1/2 days of government spending. now president obama has not been a leader on this. he's not been serious. he's been acting weak and, of course, clinging to his radical ideology. enough is enough. maybe it's time to have

to fix it. we have some great ideas to fix the fiscal cliff blues. try flying first class and don't pay for it. welcome to "the willis report." hello, everybody. i am gerri willis. tonight congress is pushing america up a fiscal cliff of its own making. president obama and the senate back in washington today trying to get some kind of a deal done, that is what they say, but nothing will likely come in time. harry reid spent the day moaning about how bad of a speaker john boehner is good the house is set to return sunday afternoon just one day before the end of the year. nearly 90% of americans will be hit with $500 billion in tax hikes and spending cuts. as we head off a cliff, what can you and your family expect come january 2? president of the american action reform joins me now. so, windows narrowing, what can we expect from here? >> if we literally go on autopilot and they fail to change course, i am worried about the economy. some sharp equity market attractions, consumer confidence has already begun, lots and lots of notices sent out, layoffs scaring people to death. this is not a
next year maybe kids can penpal. we will work on that. a lot of them don't have electricity. so, and postage by the way will be a real challengeth. i would love them to have communication. and the wonderful paem. gep, thank you very much. we are now up to $5 million and the grand total is $5.2 million. almost $5.3 million and we have still hoping for more. thank you again for the help you have given this year. the bell tolls, it will be tolling for you. leading off tonight, josh green and chris frates of "national journal." you don't have to be as clear as i but try, gentlemen, tonight. it looks to me like one party, once again it's asymmetric. both parties are not screwing around, one is. is that true? >> i think both parties want to go over the cliff. >> both want to go over the cliff? who will get blamed? >> i think republicans will get blamed, but i think republicans at this point fear casting a career-threatening vote to raise taxes instead of waiting four days and letting the cliff -- >> and then they can technically say -- >> they're voting for a tax cut. >> do they presu
we revisited the debt ceiling for tarp, so, i don't think that the markets are going to be particularly happy, but i don't know that it's necessarily for the right reasonss i to think that we're going to get a deal here, but i think it's going to end up happening late january, maybe middle of january, but at the end. day, stuart, it doesn't solve any of our problems. stuart: i agree, i agree. >> and i'm so frustrated that we're 13 months in, we've had 13 months to figure it out and we're at the 11th hour. stuart: everybody is. the mood of the country, furious nothing is happening here and politicians are dithering at the last minute. why is it? it doesn't look like a deal is going to get done. a total stop gap and as you say it's not a good deal anyway. why hasn't the stock market fallen out of bed? we're still at 13,000 on the dow. why are we still there? >> what i think usually when congress doesn't do anything, that's a good signal for the market. two, i think the market is very sphisophisticated and whether ot we get a deal is not going to make a dent in the grand
just has a few d days left to change his mind, but i have to be very honest, mr. president. i don't know time wise how it can happen now. >> let me kind of lay out the state of play. i'll try to keep it out as much as possible. this is something everybody is focused on. the ball is in the senate's court right now. so what senator reid, who you saw earlier, and the president, what they are trying to figure out is whether or not they can craft what the president called a scaled-back bill, which is what he campaigned on. raising taxes for everybody making more than $250,000 a year and adding a few other tax-related items in there. maybe spending but it's unclear. the question is whether or not they can put all that together in a way to get enough republican votes in order to pass the senate and then would have to have enough votes to pass the house as well. whether they can do that in the next few days is an open question. >> just procedurally too, that takes time. and congress notoriously moves slowly. one wall street economist suggested, and this caught my attention, bun ji jump of
scenario moving forward. >> i don't think it's a lack of urgency, but a great deal of concern that republican party failed to do anything. it seems that in the house, boehner has no control over his extreme right wing faction. i think the american people are very clear about what they want. what they want is to ask the wealthiest people in the country to pay their fair share of taxes. there was a poll out the other day, 70% of the american people think folks making over $250,000 a year should pay their fair share. they understand that one out of four corporations are paying nothing. the american people are very, very clear throughout this election and in polling as well. do not cut social security, medicare and medicaid. you have the situation with republicans saying hey, we don't think billionaires should pay a nickel more in taxes, but we think there should be cuts in programs impacting working families who are already hurting. that's the problem we have. >> let's talk about one of the programs, unemployment insurance. it seems that the administration believes that it is ver
don't think we go back into a recession, but when i talk about this, seven and $87 billion went into the economy to rescue it from the recession. now if we don't pullout $600 billion with the tax creases -- increases so that would have an adverse effect on wall street and main street. we live in a global economy. this sense verbal signals. tracy: what about signals to your stuuents? they are about to enter the job force nobody will hire any time soon. >> hiring is the key number but the good news with jobless claims they suggest the layoffs have begun to moderate. it is in the range of a healthy economy. but the bureau of labor statistics said the number of job openings available. look at those who are actively searching there's 12 people for every excuse me for every one job created for people are looking for the job. that ratio has been the same lori: unemployment is still a crisis 3-point doubt station -- but you point* out to shifting with taxes, and and entitlements going to the unemployment report next week we are accustomed at the 150,000 payroll and we are satisfied? >>
about the deal. what if there's a deal, craig, for, i don't know, say 4 hr $500,000 the threshold of who gets taxes and who keeps -- everybody under that number keeps their tax cuts. everyone over pays more and there's spending cuts. is that a bad deal? >> yeah. i think it is. let me tell you why. because you can't get everything out of this deal that you want and frankly, all we're doing is kicking the can down the road. you know as well as i do this does nothing to deal with the $1 trillion plus deficits we have yearly. this is the fifth year in a row, we're going to have $20 trillion worth of debt on top of $48 trillion worth a long-term liabilities by the time mr. obama leaves office. this is the time to deal with this issue. we've been kicking it down the road ten years. we promised the nation in 2011 under the budget deal with the sequesters we would not let this get away from us. we shouldn't this time. for mr. obama to suggest i've cut a trillion in spending because he saved money on the wars in afghanistan is gimmicks. they a work. >> i have to be honest, it's both sides. it str

trying to deflect attention on to me and my colleagues over the past few weeks is that they don't have a plan of their own that could get bipartisan support. the so-called senate bill that the majority leader keeps referring to passed with only democratic votes and despite the deep calls for the house to pass it, he knows as well as i do that he himself is the reason it can't happen. the paperwork never left the senate. there's nothing for the house to vote on the as i pointed out before we took the vote back on july the 25th the democratic bill is, quote, a revenue measure that didn't originate in the house so it's got no chance whatsoever of becoming law, end quote. that's what i said back on july 25th. the only reason we ever allowed that vote on that proposal, as i said at that time, was that we knew it didn't pass constitutional muster and that democrats were really serious they would proceed to a revenue bill that originated in the house, as the constitution requires, and as i called on them to do again last week. to repeat, the so-called senate bill is nothing more than a glorif
are beginning a campaign, i don't know how large the campaign is going to be, to have inscribed on some of the sleeves that go around their coffee to make it easier to hold, going to write "come together" in a message to politicians in washington, and you know, if coffee can't unite people, what can? >> let's hope. the clock's still ticking. john harwood in washington, thank you. >>> what are the chances that a deal can be reached this week? jonathan allen is a senior correspondent at politico. welcome. you just heard john harwood say that there are some rumblings that there might be a 50/50 chance of a so-called mini deal that would do something to avoid the sequestration and avoid the worst of the tax hikes. is that what you're hearing? >> that's how bad it is. we're down to a 50/50 chance of a mini deal. for two years the president and the congress together collectively and also individually essentially abdicated their leadership on the budget. i don't know why anybody would necessarily expect that to change over the next two or three days so the best you could hope for is a little b
. >> not because democrats and congress don't want to go ahead and cooperate, but because i think it's been very hard for speaker boehner and republican leader mcconnell to accept the fact that taxes on the wealthiest americans should go up a little bit and as part of an overall deficit reduction package. if folks can't say yes to good offers, then i also have an obligation to the american people to make sure that the entire burden of deficit reduction doesn't fall on seniors who are relying on medicare. >> now, one of the questions in the days ahead will be whether or not this strategy back fired because republican leaders on the hill had their feathers ruffled by the fact that the president seemed to be blaming them. and speaker john boehner saying he should spend more time negotiating, why are you on tv while mitch mcconnell is working with harry reid to troy to get a deal. the president's point was if they do not make any progress on bipartisan talks in the senate since the clock is running out he wants a straight up and down vote on the senate on his fallback level. put it go in the $250,00
have stayed in place and kept working on it. as a freshman member of the congress, i don't have the pull or the power to say when we're going to be there, when we're not, but at the u.s. house of representatives has acted, we're waiting for the senate to act and i believe that as soon as they act, we'll be back in town to find some forge, some pathway forward. >> well, a senior white house official told cnn tonight to that point, they said we believe strongly a reasonable package can get majorities in both houses. the only thing that would prevent it is if speaker mcconnell and boehner don't cooperate rate. do you think mcconnell and boehner are in the mood to cooperate with president obama? >> i do believe they're in a mood to cooperate. speaker boehner's talked for a very lopg time about a grand bargain, a big deal, about trying to find some major solution going forward. but the senate hasn't acted on anything, so i think we have to be careful on just placing the blame on mcconnell or boehner. without adding in to this mix, senator reid. >> will you support whatever short-term
on the major indices, puts on the dows or puts on the spiders. i don't know anything about gold. if i'm forced into a hard asset, would i rather look at silver, but in bonds, i think the risk in bonds is extraordinary, but i'm not a bond guy, so it's a little prejudice, but that's a dangerous play to me. >> see you later. all right. here we go. we're going into the last hour here as we wrap up the trading week near the lows of the day and of the week, down 142 points. stick around. we may hear something out of this white house meeting during this second hour of the "closing bell" which gets under way right now. >>> and welcome back, everybody, to the "closing bell." i'm mandy drew i sitting in for maria bartiromo. lots of drama in washington. congressional leaders have arrived at white house. they arrived there about an hour ago with three days to go before we go over that proverbial fiscal cliff. they are meeting with the president and the treasury secretary timothy geithner, and they are trying to hash out a deal. but reports that the president has nothing new on the table has ended up spook
the past few weeks is they don't have a plan of their own that could get bipartisan support. the so-called senate bill that the majority leader keeps referring to passed with only democratic votes and despite his repeated calls for the house to call it, he knows he himself is the reason it can't happen. the paperwork never left the senate. so there's nothing for the house to vote on. as i pointed out before we took that vote back on july 25th, the democratic bill is, quote, a revenue measure that didn't originate in the house so it's got no chance whatsoever of becoming law, end quote. that's what i said back on july 25th. the only reason we ever allowed that vote on that proposal is i said at that time was that we knew it didn't pass constitutional muster. and the democrats were really serious, they would proceed to a revenue bill that originated in the house as the constitution requires and as i called on them to do again last week. to repeat, the so-called nate bill is nothing more than a glorified sense of the senate resolution. so let's put that convenient talking point aside f
don't think any political figure would want to make that sort of decision to have him go home and live the rest of his days out on bed rest, but i just want to throw out there that his father is rumored to have lived over 100. and mubarak is still in his mid-80s. so this is a man who has longevity in his family. >> all right. ian lee, thank you very much. appreciate it. >>> president obama back in washington today to tackle the so-called fiscal cliff. he landed about 30 minutes ago. you see him getting off of the air force one. the president shut his vacation short do deal with this economic crisis. according to a tweet from a white house spokesman, the president spoke with all four congressional leaders before leaving hawaii for washington, and the senate is reconvening today. now the automatic spending cuts and the tax increases that make up the fiscal cliff, they're set to take effect in just five days. much more on the fiscal cliff crisis, the effort to reach some kind of agreement later this hour. we're going go live to capitol hill for the latest as the senate returns to work. th
